error code on my battery and charger! please help

I just baught a brand new Venom 11.1v 5000mah 20c 3s lipo, and a venom 2/3 cell balance charger. I also already had a Tenergy lipo charger. On both chargers i got an error code. Also on my Traxxas stampede 4x4 vxl, as soon as I drove maby 20 feet the low-volatage detection kicked in and cut all the power to the engine... Thanks for the help!

do you have a cell checker? or even a multimeter? what's the voltage of the battery (and the individual cells if you have a cell checker) what was the error code?

you might have took the power to low even if you set the cut off on the ESC you need a cell checker see how much you have left in the cells...it happend to me once i thought i set my ESC to the right cut off but i didnt i ran it down took it to my hobby shop and yes i came dam close to killing the lipo so i say take it to your local hobby shop they might be able to help.

Ok, unfortunatly the nearist hobby shop is about an hour and a half away I don't have an cell checker. I contacted the lipo company and they have a new one on the way. Also how do I change the ESC's cut off. It's a VXL-3s ESC with a velinon 3500 brushless motor.

Thanks again,
Owen

did you get a program card at all with your motor some motor esc come with a program card. My Tazer 4000kv has a mode button on the esc turn it on while holding the mode button then you enter program mode and go from their.

The manual for the ESC will give very clear directions on how to chance the LVC. If you don't have the paper manual, you can see the PDF version on the traxxas website.

Those voltages are not uncommon for fast charging NiMh. Although a very high voltage could indicate bad connectors or high internal resistance on the battery, meaning lower quality cells or damaged cells.

I had a HiTec X1 for a short little while and returned it because it kept giving me a "Battery Vol Err Cell Connect" message and would stop chargeing mid charge. I'll never buy HiTec again. The Duratrax Onyx 245 has been a good work horse though.
